Most marshmallows are made of porcine gelatin and are not "clean".
Be careful out there.

True. You have to look for marshmallows marked "kosher" or "vegan". They're a bit more expensive.

Note: It is difficult to find marshmallows not made with porcine gelatin.

I have been able to find kosher or vegan marshmallows at various health food/specialty stores like Whole Foods or Trader Joes. They don't always have them and are usually a few dollars extra - so we just save them for special treats (in hot chocolate or as a campfire smore)

Seeing "Kosher" on the label is of no value.
